Today would be our last day in Pipa. We'd loved Praia do Madeiro so much that we decided to go back there. By 10:25 we'd settled into exactly the same loungers that we'd vacated the evening before. I couldn't accept being so clueless in the surf yesterday afternoon so decided on a second lesson. Sid said she wanted to join me so we went in search of Jonathan.

It's still a little hard for us to talk about this day that will go down in U.S. soccer history as one of the most epic matches ever to be played. We're still reeling. Our day really began in the Rio airport at 9:30pm, as we waited to board our overnight flight to Natal. The terminal was filled with USA fans, and it's really easy to make friends when everyone is wearing the same colors. Our favorite fans were a group of middle-aged men in Harlem Globetrotters-esque warm-up suits ...
